#4 Best Public Access Golf Course in NSW


Pacific Dunes is a championship golf course located in Port Stephens, NSW and ranked as the #4 best public access course in NSW.

Being a former PGA touring professional, I understand how important the environment is to your golfing experience. That’s why our course is finished with world-class pure bentgrass greens and maintained to an impeccable standard by a full-time team of dedicated agronomists.

Pacific Dunes combines two distinct nine hole loops to create a spectacular 18-hole championship course. The opening nine holes wind through the native woodland setting, perfectly complementing the stunning wetland back nine.
